Did the grate come with it? I wonder why... Unless you're panning for gold boulders, it'd just collect stuff.

Just added the expanded Metal on the bottom just to make it look different and for safety reason. Kids. Bent the pipe welded to the stock rock panel that comes with the rubicon. Then painted it.

All together I spend about 60 bucks pair of steel pipe. Paint. A buddy and I welded them on the panel. Then primer and painted. Then just bolted back on my jeep.

Next project is building a rear bumper. Then later adding a swing out tire carrier.

I'd tie the sway bar links to the sway bar. I'm sure that's what you meant though.

Get 2 bolts with cotter pin like you did with the link. Spin the link up to the frame and make a mark where the hole in the link is. Drill the hole the size of your bolt.now push the bolt from inside out and you can spin the link back up and connect. Insert cotter pin.

Is it alright if I just sit them on top of the springs for now? Or will the fall? I tucked both of them up there and felt sturdy. Any thoughts?

On top of the perch? Seems like you get rolling and bumping and it would fall and get into some kind of mess.

Interesting... I never tried to take the grill off of my old TJ - but you can pop the JK's grill in about 3 minutes.

Don't get any ideas though.

Cut the stock fender flares with a dremel tool, and picked up some edge trim from oriellys to clean up the edges. Pretty easy to do.

Probably would have made them easier to do, but I was to chick sh$@ to do the ones on there, so I used my buddy's old ones just in case it didn't turn out right.
